A new controversy seems to rise each day in the Pakistani media industry, and unfortunately, the latest target of it all is Saba Qamar.
While the trolls have decided to unnecessarily propagate hate on the Hindi Medium actor for a recent photo-shoot that has been leaked online, the celebrities have now come out in full support of Saba after the incident.
In one post, Adnan Siddiqui condemned the action.
“I’m deeply saddened by this act, this is not us and we shouldn’t take pride in it in any manner!” Adnan wrote. “I totally condemn this and wouldn’t want to highlight the name of a man behind it but I’m not going to work for with him or anything associated with him ever!”
Came through what’s being called BTS images of my colleague and a friend #SabaQamar’s recently done photoshoot which is spreading on social media like wildfire, I’m deeply saddened by this act, this is not us and we shouldn’t take pride in it in any manner! I totally condemn this and wouldn’t want to highlight the name of a man behind it but I’m not going to work for with him or anything associated with him ever! #support #friendship #pakistanshowbiz #Colleague #together #pakistan .
On the other hand, Osman Khalid Butt had a strong message for those who leaked the images, and those who shared it.
“For the love of God, stop looking for every excuse to drag your icons down,” he wrote.
Just heard about the all-too-familiar misogynistic, repulsive rhetoric that's swept the nation once BTS pictures from Saba's photoshoot were leaked (WITHOUT her consent). First: you do not fuck with Saba Qamar. Period. Second: For the love of God, stop looking for every excuse to drag your icons down. Third: STOP sharing these images/videos and stop commenting on them. If you want to speak out, speak out against the jahalat of whoever did this just for social media infamy.
Although reportedly the original poster of the images has taken them down, the trolls have shared the image all across social media.
Will all of this deter Saba Qamar from being the amazing person she is? definitely not! So, let the trolls hate because they can never beat down this icon.
